with emphasis on the 'rock'. Songs preferred over albums.
Neu! - Negativland
Faust - Picnic on a Frozen River, Deux
Fujiya & Miyagi - Cassettesingle
Holy Fuck - Safari
"DADDY. TAKE THE BANANA. TOMORROW IS SUNDAAAAY!!!!"
Possibly some of the worst lyrics ever (but a great track).
specifically looking for German Krautrock:
The Boredoms - 7? (Boriginal) from Super Roots 7
Other than that try; Faust - It's a Rainy Day, Sunshine Girl and Can - Butterfly, Father Cannot Yell, Mother Sky
YOO MYADE A BELYIEVER OUTTA MEYYY!!
but Devo is krautrock-ish, right? Get on that!
ARE WE NOT MEN?
Amon Duul ii, Faust, Can, Van Der Graaf Generator...
songs are for suckers
..is faust, can and neu
I would recommend:
Its a Bit of A Pain, I got my car and my tv, sad skinhead, J'ai Mal au Dents (faust)
Mother Sky, I'm So Green, Vitamin C, Tango Whiskeyman, Halleluwah (Can)
Hallogallo, Heo, E-Musik (Neu)
Neu and Faust pretty musch consistently great. Some of the later Can stuff is a bit too prog for me.
La Dusseldorf, Amon Duul 2 and Guru Guru also worth checking.
Perhaps my favourite Krautrock band.
More ambient/electronic than rock for much of their career but their first album Electronic Meditations has some great freeform guitar work on it and sole vocal album Cyclone could almost be Pink Floyd in places.
Scorpions - Don't Stop at the Top
Freiheit - Keeping The Dream Alive
I've made a Spotify playlist of all the songs I could find from the thread and jumbled them up at random. Feel free to add more.
ASH RA TEMPEL, are pretty amazing. get the self-titled second record if possible.
self-titled album is the first actually. Followed by Schwingungen, Join Inn and Seven Up which are all worth a look.
